Yes, I want more Royal Guard action
Yes, I want to see the Soul King
Yes, I want the Quincies to invade it
Yes, I want Aizen sneaking in and be the Soul King
No, because it has been boring thus far
No, because it's not relevant to the actual fight
I don't care much, Sado can become Soul King if he wants
Next follow-up question to it is where will he appear at?
With you on that, I honestly don't want a Soul Society arc Part II where he appears at the Sokyoku hill and takes on the VC by himself, hopefully something that isn't going to mirror that.
Preferably he goes straight to Haschwalt to intervene the fight between Shunsui and Haschwalt since that's probably where Uryuu/Yhwach will appear as well.
If he goes around saving other captains first, then they pretty much lost all credibility of being called a captain if they need Ichigo to help save them.
Is it just me or Aizen is waiting for the right time to pop up and yell out "surprise" ?
One of the few capable of doing so.
It seems like it'll be a while before Ichigo actually arrives. If only 3 hours have passed so far and Ichigo estimates it'll take him half a day (12 hours), we're talking at least 10+ chapters if that's the pace, which would actually be good. It just seems too soon for him to actually take place in this battle because he's going to have a major affect and he's either going to have to fight multiple sternritter at once or I guess Uryuu or Ywach to show us his power-up. Just seems way too early for that to happen. It's only been 3 hours. I was wondering how Kubo would managed to make this final battle into a long arc, but now I understand...Each chapter is like an episode of 24...only one hour or less actually takes place...which, if you think about the pace of a realistic (imaginary) battle, makes sense. In three hours the Captains have taken the offensive, then been overpowered, then regained their bankai and went on the offensive again, and are now dealing with vollstandig.

To everyone thinking the manga will end soon, take a look at the characters left to go bankai, give that at least 2 chapters/weeks. Lets list them; Shunsui, Juushiro, Kensei (sorta), Shinji, Love, Rose, Urahara, Isshin, possibly Yoruichi, the 4 royal guards, and everyone's favorite strawberry Ichigo and his new powers. Thats 15 people. Even if everyone gets one week/chapter and dies thats 5 months! And we know it will be at least 2 or 3 chapters of Ichigo and his new attributes. Not to mention their opponents. We have 7 confirmed releases of Volstandig. Don't forget the Nakama. Orihime, Chad and their Hueco Mundo company. Then Renji Rukia and Byakuya coming back with a vengeance. And then Juha Bach and Uryuu! Who knows what else I'm missing, but that content is easily enough for another year maybe 2 added to story. I bet Bleach goes on into 2015 easily.
So Bleach is rushed? I don't think so. Short chapters that act as bridges to the story are needed or else chaos never ends and the pacing becomes off when the action stops. This is why chapters like 555 are needed.
Does anyone think the gloves Ichigo is wearing relates to his quincy power?
on the side note: its getting interesting now...
Ichigo's shunpo will be the longest and most awaited shunpo of all...lol
He'll probably arrive in SS in about 3 months.. ^__^
Just enough for everyone to have their own panels and fights and some characters to be killled by Kubo.. ^__^
I really want Ichigo to beat that one girl that Hirako is facing. Ahhh her character just pisses me off. And after her. They can all just tag team Ichigo.
Also I wonder if Bach is expecting Ichigo to return. This will be fun.
I'm still trying to bridge this connection between the Quincies and Shinigami being polar opposites; what exactly does that mean??? Also, we've been told Humans and Hollows are polar opposites too!!! This isn't something to be overlooked, as they literally balance each other out on a cellular level!!! My question is, what is the "spectrum" that they reside on opposite ends of??? This may give a clue as to what their origins are!!!
Lets look at an example; acid and alkali. They're opposite on the PH scale (the "spectrum"), and they can be formed from a "neutral" substance (e.g. salt water). My question is, were the Shinigami and Quincies both formed from some "neutral" being that had no supernatural powers whatsoever???
Wait, I'm going off at a tangent here, but bear with me!!! My predication for the end of this blood war is that we're going to discover that the Soul King (or whatever the Shinigami progenitor is) and Juhabach are, whilst opposite to each other, related to each other too!!! I don't think it would be too far-fetched to say that they may both be antagonists at the end of this war!!!
Her attacks are reishi as well after all.
I would Lol so bad if Yhwach ended up to be under Aizen's Kyouka Suigetsu already or if Aizen is already disguised as someone in the Sternreitter and just waiting for his opportunity to pounce.
A facade? perhaps a diversion he created to occur in Soul Society, but one thing for sure is Yhwach is aiming for the Royal Realm which lies his true target, Soul King.
Know what would be crazy? If the Soul King and Yhwach are brothers *cue dramatic music
I don't like how Ichigo is already on his way to battle, while Rukia and friends and the Royal Guard stayed behind. That means Ichigo will go into battle, kick some ass, get his ass kicked, and then gets saved by Royal Guard+Renji+Co? I'd rather Ichigo shows up last and defeats the final boss
also, i want some Bambietta x Ichigo...Bambietta is hella cute
Did anyone else notice this...? http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...69-page-9.html
On the back of Ichigo's robe there's a black triangle peaking out from under the collar. Like the diamond the RGs' symbol and Captains' squad numbers are in on the backs of their robes. Could be nothing, but I just saw it reading the chapter again. Also what he's wearing underneath looks almost like a blend of Shinigami and Quincy uniform. I really want to see the secret of Senjumaru and her fabrics.
And it's interesting that Byakuya, Renji and Rukia haven't been deployed, since they had a headstart on Ichigo since two of them needed to answer questions about their origins like him and Byakuya probably didn't need an Asauchi test. I mean, assuming they weren't sent out ahead already.
